(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Gun control groups are taking a shot at stretching a recent court ruling.

They want the ruling that upholds the University of Utah's campus weapons ban to apply to K-through-12 schools.

The group known as Safe Havens for Learning hopes to push a bill this coming session to clarify the state's law on concealed weapons.

Approved legislation allows lawfully concealed weapons on school grounds.

But a judge ruled last week that the University of Utah could ban weapons on their campus if they choose to.

Gun control advocates still have to get a sponsor for the bill.

But state leaders say until they stop the bad guys, the good guys should be able to carry weapons.
